Diagnose. Document. Correct.

In a study by the University of Miami School of Medicine comparing the Spinal Stiffness Gauge (SGG) to a subjective measurement of spine stability, it was determined that patients measuring less than 25N/mm stiffness could be candidates for fusion; those measuring between 25 and 55N/mm would be potential candidates for joint reconstruction. Those measuring 55 N/mm were considered fused. Current assessments of spine stiffness are performed manually. Mekanika's Spinal Stiffness Gauge will accurately measure and help surgeons in defining the appropriate treatment for the optimum outcome.
